The team of 14 including Paula McMinn from The Savoy, Oliver Milne Watson from The Beaumont and Duncan Couper from Portico, will partner with members of the Gold Key Media team to cycle over 200 miles from London to Paris during the August bank holiday to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer.

The group will set off on the morning of Saturday 29th and plan to arrive in Paris in the afternoon of Monday 31st.

The team, young and old, and all novice cyclers will be kitted out in Lycra as they attempt to complete the journey within three days.

Chris Horn, managing director of Gold Key Media, said: “I am delighted that the Gold Key Media team have leapt on the opportunity to attempt such a courageous and worthwhile challenge and, of course, I am sure we will have some fun along the way too. Whilst we hugely appreciate any sponsorship, we are also hopeful that our many industry contacts will feel glued to their tablets and phones to follow our progress on Twitter and Instagram. Our aim is to gain maximise exposure for these two great causes.”
